Accounting Workshop for Film Creatives

Show Me Shorts has teamed up with accounting specialists The Hive to offer a workshop demystifying tax and book-keeping in the film industry.

This workshop is designed to help creative freelancers and small business owners working in the film industry. If you need a bit of guidance about getting things started, or want a refresher to make sure you’re accounting for things correctly then this is for you.

In this interactive workshop we will learn how to avoid common mistakes in business, and find out what you can legitimately claim back from the tax man.  Just some of the things we will touch on:

  • Things your accountant won’t tell you and why
  • Accounting myths
  • Tax obligations
  • Getting a loan
  • Managing your paperwork
  • Common mistakes to avoid
  • Tips and tricks

If you have questions about how to handle your accounts and taxes then come along to our hour-long presentation of need to know questions and answers.  Hosted by accounting experts with a special interest in the film industry, in a fun and interactive format, using language that you can understand without the jargon.
